Liverpool linked with a move for John McGinn

Liverpool could find their perfect heir to Gini Wijnaldum in the shape of Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn.

What’s the story?

According to the Sunday Post (as reported by the Daily Record), the Reds are keen on signing the 26-year-old after another impressive season at Villa Park.

The report claims that Dean Smith’s men would only consider bids of at least £20 million and that relatively low figure could tempt Liverpool into making a move this summer.

Should Liverpool sign McGinn?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

Edwards must swoop

Wijnaldum’s decision to depart the Anfield outfit and join French giants Paris Saint-Germain has left Jurgen Klopp desperately searching for an adequate replacement.

The likes of Saul Niguez, Florian Neuhaus and Nicolo Barella have all been linked with a move to Merseyside in recent weeks, and now a new candidate has emerged in McGinn.

While the Scotland international may not carry as much intrigue or excitement as the aforementioned stars, the former Hibernian workhorse would certainly be a valuable addition to Liverpool’s ranks.

Since arriving at Villa for just £2.5m back in 2018, McGinn has helped Dean Smith’s men win promotion back to the Premier League before helping them to an 11th placed finish last term.

He’s now thriving on the international scene as well, playing a pivotal part as Scotland held England to a draw at Wembley Stadium in Euro 2020.

McGinn’s performances with his national side have earned praise from several plaudits, including assistant manager Steven Reid, who lauded his “unbelievable character” on the eve of the tournament.

With money expected to be tight at Liverpool – and most clubs across the continent – over the coming months due to the pandemic, picking up a bargain may be more important than ever this summer.

Klopp has already added Ibrahima Konate to his ranks via a £34m deal, and the German tactician is believed to be targeting at least one attacker as well as a central midfielder.

Consequently, director of football Michael Edwards must swoop for McGinn. At just £20m, Liverpool are unlikely to find a better value for money deal, and if he performs like he has done for both club and country, the Villa ace could help The Reds regain their Premier League crown next season.
